Synopsis

Conan was the only child born on Remnant Island, a place settled by a group of refugees while they fled a terrifying wave of magnetic bombs that wiped out most of humanity. After 20 years, most of the castaways have died, save for Conan and the wise old man that raised him.

Believing Remnant Island to be the last inhabited place on Earth, Conan is shocked when he discovers a young girl named Lana washed up on the beach one day. Though he is thrilled to learn that humanity has survived, Lana tells him the nation of Industria wants her as a hostage to force her grandfather, Dr. Lao, to power their machinery. Their conversation is cut short when Industria's top pilot, Monsley, suddenly appears and seizes Lana. Determined to save her, Conan immediately sets off from Remnant Island and begins a journey that will ultimately determine the fate of the world.

This is a series so imiginative in its artistry and so mature in its execution, non-anime and non-cartoon fans couldn't help but be drawn in. "Future Boy Conan" provides one of the best examples of animated storytelling available to watch. To boot, its one of the most entertaining stories I've had the pleasure of watching.

FBC is so entertaining because of its high technical and artistic merits. Technically, the animation and artistry is hard to match even today. The imaginitive settings are gorgeously rendered, and the shear number of places the story goes, like a giant solar tower or a flying fortress or rocket-come-house, will read more

I absolutely loved Mirai Shounen Conan (forgive me for using the japanese name),
the story is based on this planet, after the mankind has destroyed and polluted the earth in a world war.
The story starts on a small island, where Conan lives with his grandfather, thinking they are the lone survivors of the war. But they come to see that there are others alive when a girl washes on the shore of their island..

The Story is an instant classic, with the theme of good vs evil. I think the story will appeal for every age, it has these certain catches, and twists in it also. read more

Hayao Miyazaki is the guy who directed this. Hands down.

But seriously and I really mean seriously. Imagine watching the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie and impose the background of a post-apocalyptic world (obviously as indirectly described in the synopsis) dominated by the color blue and very dark blue of the sky like the early posters or still images in search engines of this series. This would exactly be what Future Boy Conan is as your first impression on an emotional level.

Now I just said "post-apocalyptic world". It's true with the usual pop cultural trope that war is bad, but what is worse? Obviously the read more

When writing about Future Boy Conan, the term "timeless" comes to mind. The tale of Conan, his friends and his foes was as engaging and captivating to me, watching it in 2011 as I'm sure it was back when it first aired in 1978. It's also interesting to note that several themes that would be recurring in Miyazaki's movies show up here for the first time, including strong female characters and spectacular flight-scenes. Finally, Future Boy Conan contains just as much adventure and sense of wonder as any movie I've seen from Studio Ghibli. To put it simple, Future Boy Conan is a classic that read more
